Warm spring reduced carbon cycle impact of the 2012 US summer drought
Wolf, S., Keenan, T.F., Fisher, J.B., Baldocchi, D.D., Desai, A.R., Richardson, A.D., Scott, R.L., Law, B.E., Litvak, M.E., Brunsell, N.A., Peters, W., van der Laan-Luijkx, I.T.

The global terrestrial carbon sink offsets one-third of the world’s fossil fuel emissions, but the strength of this sink is highly sensitive to large-scale extreme events. In 2012, the contiguous United States experienced exceptionally warm temperatures and the most severe drought since the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s, resulting …

A Cross-Biome Comparison Of Daily Light Use Efficiency For Gross Primary Production
Turner, D. P., Urbanski, S., Bremer, D., Wofsy, S. C., Meyers, T., Gower, S. T., Gregory, M.

Vegetation light use efficiency is a key physiological parameter at the canopy scale, and at the daily time step is a component of remote sensing algorithms for scaling gross …

Abiotic Constraints On The Establishment Of Quercus Seedlings In Grassland
Danner, B. T., Knapp, A. K.

High evaporative demand and periodic drought characterize the growing season in midwestern grasslands relative to deciduous forests of the eastern US, and predicted climatic …

Estimating Net Primary Productivity From Grassland Biomass Dynamics Measurements
Scurlock, J. M., Johnson, K., Olson, R. J.

To address the need for a high quality data set based upon field observations suitable for parameterization, calibration, and validation of terrestrial biosphere models, we have developed a comprehensive global database on net primary productivity (NPP). We have compiled field measurements of biomass and associated environmental …

Test Of An Extended Mathematical Approach To Calculate Maize Leaf Area Index And Leaf Angle Distribution
Antunes, M. A. H., Walter-Shea, E. A., Mesarch, M. A.

Accurate estimates of leaf area index (LAI) and leaf angle distribution (LAD) are important for estimating the exchange of energy and gases in vegetative canopies. Direct estimates of LAI and LAD are laborious, time consuming and often times destructive. Stewart and Dwyer [Agric. For. Meteorol. 66 (1993) 247] introduced a mathematical …

Effect Of Spring Burning On The Surface Energy Balance In A Tallgrass Prairie
Bremer, D. J., Ham, J. M.

Spring burning of dead biomass in tallgrass prairie is a common practice that may influence heat and water vapor transport from the landscape. Bowen ratio methods were used to measure the surface energy balances and evapotranspiration (ET) from burned (B) and unburned (UB) prairie near Manhattan, KS, USA. Data were collected from …

An Approach To Spatially Distributed Modeling Of Net Primary Production (NPP) At The Landscape Scale And Its Application In Validation Of EOS NPP Products
Reich, P. B., Turner, D. P., Bolstad, P.

Substantial research seeks to improve estimates of ecosystem processes and fluxes at a range of scales, notably from the stand scale (<1 km2) using ecosystem physiology and eddy covariance techniques, to the landscape (∼102 km2) and …

Interacting Influence Of Mycorrhizal Symbiosis And Competition On Plant Diversity In Tallgrass Prairie
Smith, M. D., Hartnett, D. C., Wilson, G. W.

In tallgrass prairie, plant species interactions regulated by their associated mycorrhizal fungi may be important forces that influence species coexistence and community structure; however, the mechanisms and magnitude of these interactions remain unknown. The objective of this study was to determine how interspecific competition, …

Relationships Between Leaf Area Index And Landsat TM Spectral Vegetation Indices Across Three Temperate Zone Sites
Turner, D. P., Cohen, W. B., Kennedy, R. E., Fassnacht, K. S., Briggs, J. M.

Mapping and monitoring of leaf area index (LAI) is important for spatially distributed modeling of vegetation productivity, evapotranspiration, and surface energy balance. Global LAI surfaces will be an early product of the MODIS Land Science Team, and the requirements for …
